PhOniAndFlOrE present Dubsteady, an electro-dub odyssey that, while clearly prioritizing modern over classic, has echo and reverb hidden amongst its heavy basslines and varied influences. Opener “Disco Dub” fuses hip-hop and electro over a pulsating beat while “Scoopy” is synth-laden and equally relentless. The title track is a bit mellower, yet Injham’s well-layered remix, with its epic intro and almost glitchy drums, pushes the musical boundaries even farther. Closer “Capture” is more heavy electro-dub, a strong final statement on the sound that this prolific producer is championing.

From France comes Phoniandflore’s Melodica Time, featuring the original dub track alongside three heady remixes.  The original of course features plenty of melodica, laid atop a nice steppas groove and a haunting Eastern-inspired melody during the latter parts of the track.  Shan-a-Shan beefs up the song, with the beat becoming heavier while still remaining smooth; Injham doesn’t alter the original much, but the adjustments make each section standout more; Jideh High lays the dub on thick, with echoes and reverbs coating the beat like mist, resulting in a hazy, late-night stagger of a remix.  Great stuff, well worth a listen and download:
